Lovely bungalow with everything needed for a visit

5 of 5
The bungalow is in an ideal position near to the town centre and is very well equiped. It is very clean and warm with a lovely rear secluded garden. The flowers chocolates and wine left by the owner was a very nice touch. It is always good to be greeted by the ownwer rather than a annonymous key box. An ideal place to discover Derbyshire.
